Well, SWIG has come a long way.  I think that at this time it supports
enough of C++ to comfortably wrap VTK (may not be ITK but surely VTK).
The only big problems I could think of would be getting the reference
counting done "right".  However, the current VTK wrappers are good and
work well.  So, it isn't broke, why fix it?  However, SWIG-VTK would
probably make for an interesting and fun summer project.
